A statement from the vendor said the R9 also had the highest IP69 rating which meant it could be hit by a high-pressure hot steam jet and be dropped into water at a depth of two metres for half-an-hour.
The R9 has a 5000mAh battery which is claimed to give a full day's performance and its tempered glass display is said to add extra strength compared to a normal smartphone.
Aspera Mobile managing director Allan Roberston said, "The R9 has you covered for working in tough environments. Facial recognition makes using the phone easy in tricky situations, but if you get it a bit dirty or muddy it's no problem as you just hose it down and dry it off.
The R9 has Android 10, a Mediatek Helio A22 2GHz quad-core processor, a 13MP rear camera and 5MP front camera, 3GB RAM and 32GB ROM.
Storage can be expanded by use of an SD card upto 128GB.
"With the R9, Aspera brings another great rugged smartphone specifically tailored to Australian conditions at a very affordable price," said Roberston.
"Users of the R9, as with all Aspera Mobiles, also enjoy our continued high level of commitment to local, Australian-based customer service.
"So, if you are a tradie or just someone who wants a smartphone that can withstand the hardest of knocks without having to pay thousands of dollars for it, then the Aspera R9 is an ideal solution."
